Yall should have seen my face when I checked my comments just now- 25?! Thanks so much everyone. I'll tell ya, I AM SHOCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How did this happen? I know, I know...but, how did this happen?????? My monthly friend has been coming later and later every month so I didn't think much of it. But little things had been putting red flags up:
Very tired at bedtime
sensitive to smells
sore um, bosoms
NOT moody- no PMS
weird stomach feelings
Friday night I was reading the Quiverfull digest and reading about the Duggers; I've been wanting to have another, but felt like everything was against us- I am overweight, I have several children, one is special needs, I've had all c-sections and 'high risk' pregnancies before; my husband works a lot and I have to do mostly everything myself; my parents are very against us having more...
Saturday morning I woke up early, and thought if I am, I would rather find out today than tomorrow before church, so I went and took the test. I was fully expecting it to be negative- I was shaking when I saw two lines. I came back and laid down and my husband asked if I was alright- I said no. Then I told him and he almost started laughing. We prayed about it and we're fine- just nervous about our family and close friends' reactions. How do you tell parents something like this? Especially when they may be very negative about it? I am so close to them, so this is why it's so difficult.
*****Note, if a certain sister-in-law is reading this, please keep it secret till after Christmas- we want to tell the inlaws in person. Thank you!************
So now what?? How am I going to do this????? I'm going to be even more outnumbered than ever!!! The main goal in the next few months is to get everyone potty trained, eat as well as possible, and exercise somehow. Oh yeah, and move. Again. Back to the old house unless we get the call for a job in Michigan, which is likely. Things aren't working too well here anymore...
Overall I am good- tired in the evenings yes, but otherwise I'm fine. Praise the Lord because that's what we've been praying/confessing. Only 35 more weeks to go....
